I am a big fan of fusion food and this Thandai Mousse is one such amazing dessert which works so well for Holi!
I know, I know I am going a tad overboard with all the Holi recipes but then I am known to be like that, impulsive and going all the way when I start something, besides I made this Thandai Mousse for a Holi potluck and it was too good not to be shared with you folks. Remember I told you the party is in the weekend!
So this weekend for the Holi bash make this as dessert and the compliments will be all yours to take 🙂
One of the things I love about growing up in the North was the Holi celebrations! There was so much fun and food attached to Holi! The stories which I grew up hearing about how Holi denotes the start of spring and is celebrated in honor of Krishna and his divine love. The story of Holika who tried to burn Prahalad (one of Vishnu’s devotees) and got burnt herself! There are so many stories attached to Holi and each one of them is super interesting 🙂 But honestly, for me Holi is the fun times with friends and family. I love the idea of getting together with friends and family and having something awesome to eat and drink and play with colours! This is one festival which is associated with the concept of forgive and forget and I really like that about it! New beginnings are always welcome, aren’t they?
Thandai is closely associated with Bhang, which is supposed to be intoxicating. Apparently, it is offered to Lord Shiva who really likes his Bhang 🙂 Its amazing how our festivals take the weather into account! Like Thandai is a coolant which is drunk when the weather has started to get hot and people are tired after playing with colours all day! Amazing, isn’t it?
Oh! did I mention I also have put up the recipe of Thandai on the blog?
